All Ages View

By Leia Johnson

Here‘s to a year of new beginnings!
Imagine yourself exactly a year ago…today. It’s absolutely insane how much you change in just twelve months. Within these twelve months you have had hundreds of experiences that help shape who you have become today. For the most part, you get to pick and choose the places you go and the people you go with. That is what is so lovely about the ModestoView because it gives you so many great ideas year-round.

As you may already know, I am a sophomore at Downey High School. In the last couple of years, I have found a great group of friends who love to take part in all the fun Modesto has to offer. Our favorite thing to do is Geocaching. Geocaching is basically a scavenger hunt…anywhere you go in the world. After downloading the app, it will give you the locations of all the “caches” in your area. You would be surprised how many are hiding right under your nose! Some are easier to find than others, but all are doable. Within the container (depending on the size), there are sometimes prizes, but always a name log. This is my favorite part because you get to see all the people who got it before you! Once you get good, you can even set up some caches of your own.

Also happening downtown, the ice rink is open until the 24th of this month, so make sure that you don’t miss a great opportunity. It’s getting colder outside, so why not spend some time inside at the McHenry Mansion or the McHenry Museum. They are so rich with history and lovely people, so I highly recommend going. I hope this year and month are good to all, we will see how much we have changed this time next year. Until next month!
